Okay, so a recent pic.  Apparently Timmy and I went native in Brazil, wearing Bahia soccer jerseys.  But thank goodness Andrew knew enough to keep the faith of the Winnipeg Jets.

And the fake glasses don't help at all.

I'll tell you the same thing I tell Andrew each time he wants to grab my glasses: "I need these to see!". :mad:

So my wife had a doctor's appointment today.  I've missed a few, but today I could go.

When we went, the doctor, as hard as she tried, could not find the baby's heartbeat.  The doctor was pretty calm about it, but insisted we get into an ultrasound.  Today.  Which sent my wife into tears.

So we got into an ultrasound in the late afternoon.  Baby was just fine.  Just had his/her back to us.  But since we were in there, the ultrasound technician wanted to do the full workup. 

:hug:

I'm so glad that it all worked out. That's terrifying when that happens. How far along is she now?

Which included asking about gender.  After the big scare my wife really wanted to know the gender.

:D

Oh, you're going to have soooo much fun. :lol:

And of course this means you have to have at least one more child so that you've got one good little angel girl. :)

We're at 19 weeks.  Due date is October 8th.

But really - how much trouble could 3 brothers born three years apart get into? :unsure:

And no.  We're done.

Couple pages back he posted a picture of his gigantic newborn.  The chick.

She's almost 2. My new kid is ~2 month away from release.

@BB, lots & lots. Also your grocery bills are going to suck starting in 10 years. You a costco member, right?

My sister's 2nd is due sometime similar as well.  I dig being an uncle.   :D

Riley and I were watching some old Youtube videos that she made about three years ago (during the Vancouver Winter Olympics), and I thought I'd share one. She was so cute and adorable, then. :wub:

I have two  brothers, one 2 years younger than me and one 4 years younger.  The answer is lots.

Well, here... a few tales of the last 19 years....

* Jak and Carter tried to cut Jak's pinkie off with my sewing shears
*Carter and Jak tried to teach Jeremy to swim in the bathtub... when he was six months old.
*Note: three toddlers do not fit on a single tricylce, no matter how much they may want to
*Where one boy cannot climb a tree, three certainly can. The problem: they can't get back down.
*Running in circles in the house with capes on is great fun! UNTIL one boy tries to pass the other two and the smallest goes flying into the stair banister. (Only four stitches above the eye. NBD)
*Doors keep people out (and in) at night... unless one brother lets the other two out and back in for $20
*Fair fights are a nice concept, but three-on-one is more effective, and suspension for all is a lot more fun than suspension for one.
*Fist fights are not reserved for other kids
*In one year, we had stitches, a broken bone, a severely twisted ankle, two asthma attacks, and an appendectomy.

;)

I do far better as an uncle than I ever would have as a dad.  I enjoy being the bad uncle.
